Pac-12 Hoops: Prominent Hoops Tweeters

There are many people on Twitter who like to talk about Pac-12 basketball. There are even more who talk about college basketball. The task for a young journalism student like myself is to find the best tweeters about Pac-12 basketball, read their posts and try to discover what makes them what they do that makes them good at their job. Here are five prominent Pac-12 hoops tweeters who do a great job of providing information about the conference to the masses.

1. Percy Allen is the Washington Huskies’ mens basketball beat writer for the Seattle Times. He does a great job of providing information for fans and other writers alike. He frequently updates his blog and Twitter with information about the Huskies and the Pac-12 Conference.
